Final Thoughts with SuRpLu5:

Man, what a tournament. The ups, the downs, the losses and wins. Raisy went from barely making the Playoffs to beating Rapha, taking 4 maps off of the old king. Every play made is highlight-reel material, and it made me cheer, laugh, even cry. Mission Successful. Congrats¬†Adri√°n, you deserved it! GGWP to everyone involved, and we’ll see you at Dreamhack Winter!
